Objectives: The aim of this study was to determine the 3-year overall survival among the epithelial ovarian cancer patients based on the histology, age, stage of the disease during 2011-2017 in Iran.

Materials and Methods: This study was a cross sectional retrospective study conducted on 179 newly diagnosed epithelial ovarian cancer patients who had been referred to the Gynecologic Cancers Clinic in a referral training hospital in Tehran during 2011-2017. The patients’ data including the demographic characteristics of the patients, the stage of the disease and the treatment type were analyzed based on the pathologic responses.

Results: Among 220 newly diagnosed patients with epithelial ovarian cancer during 2011-2017 who had visited the Gynecologic Cancers Clinic in Tehran (capital of Iran), 179 patients were suitable for follow-up. Among these patients, there were 93 death cases and 85 living cases. The mean age of the patients was 50.5 ± 11.3. Most of the patients were at stage 3 (60.9%) and 6.7% of them were at stage 4. The most common pathology was serous adenocarcinoma adenocarcinoma (70.9%). In this study, the overall survival had no connection with the type of tumor histology but was related to the stage of the disease (p=0.05). There was no mortality in the stage one and the mucinous adenocarcinoma cases.

Discussion: survival in the epithelial ovarian cancer is related to the stage of the disease and among all the pathologies, mucinous adenocarcinoma and clear cell carcinoma has the best survival rate.
